Removed as it is off topic and against what was requested by the original poster. If one of the companies was mentioned in error a simple comment saying so is all that is needed.
Thanks,
Bandaid.

How far back did Wasaya require conscripts to pay up front? I was thinking about 1993 to 1995 era when Frank Kelner was around....
Anybody who can remember that far back please let me know...
Thanks

Airborne Energy has bonds for Navajo and Caravan. I do not know about 172s, but probably no bond there.

Sorry, I was referring to the BAE146. For the Ciatation and Challenger it's 1 year.

And now bonds for upgrades....

HEy Guys,

I would disagree,

CMA charges a working bond (12months or 10K) on B1900D
Starts from day you finish your PPC ride.
You do not get paid anything until you complete training

They have a bond or the Dornier as well but I think its 24m and 20k but I could be wrong

Canadian North also has a worth bond Dash 8 is 12m or 12K
or B737 is 18m or 18K

Good Luck all

This thread has been pretty quite for sometime, he's a new twist.

Air Bravo, currently advertising for Captains. I was told they are firing FO's that are refusing to take offers of left seat positions, company wants a 10K bond signed and paid upfront.

Yea I heard the same but was hesitant to believe that. Apparently the company is not doing well financially which might be part of the reason for requesting cash upfront. Problem is that you might never see that money again if the company goes under before your bond expires.

Instead of always bashing companies that require pilots to pay or sign a training bond, I thought we could do a more positive thread about companies that don't require bonds. Also if you have had positive experiences with companies that treat their pilots well.

I'll start with two 1). Commercial Aviation based in Hearst, Ont. as far as I know, have never charged a bond, also good A/C that are well maintained.
2). Clearwater Aviation based in La Loche , SK. great company with good A/C ,does not require bonds.

I would encourage pilots to apply to these companies as you would have a good experience.
If the young pilots had an alternative to the sh#tty companies out there, they might not apply to the crappy ones. Maybe if the supply of pilots starts to dry up for these sh@tty companies they will change their policies. If anyone else has a company please post it here.

I have edited this post on Sept 17/08 in order to add the list to the first post, so people do not have to go looking for it. I will continue to read this thread in order to add to the list.

Aries Aviation
Pro-Flight Ltd
Great River Air
Air Saguenay
Arctic Sunwest
Summit Air
Canadian North
Fugro
Gilliam Air
Air Georgian
Air Labrador,
Provincial Airlines
Strait Air
Grenfell Health Corporation

Exactair ( we are not sure about this one, so if someone out there knows for sure, PM or post please)

Fort Francis Air
First Air
Clearwater Aviation
Commercial Aviation
Walsten Air
MNR
Airborne energy
Alberta Central Airways
Qjets
Villers Air Service. Ft Nelson BC

CargoJet
Air Canada
WestJet
Jazz
CMA (except Do328)
Kelowna Flight Craft

Borek
Calm Air (working Bond)
Transwest Air
Buffalo Air
Air Tindi
Integra Air Inc.
Pacific Sky Aviation

I'm sure there are more out there, it doesn't matter how big or how small the company is,( Clearwater only has one aircraft) nor what type of aircraft they fly. For all you young guys or maybe just pilots looking for a change here is where you should send your resumes. Please keep the posts coming and keep this list growing. Good luck and safe flying.

Sincerely
